            'The Thelma and Louise of the seventeenth century: two mis-matched heroines, two grittily-textured lives, an outrageous plot (true!), sex, politics, and a gut-wrenching ending' Andrew Davies Frances Devereux has beauty, glamour, a powerful family - and not a friend in the world. ...Anne Taylor has wit, talent and ambition - but no way into the court she longs to enter. When these two very different women meet in the strangest of circumstances, a friendship quickly sparks and catches. Following at Frankie's heels, Anne crosses into a world beyond her imagination: a court where a foreign king is a stranger to his own subjects; where ancient families vie for power, and where a favourite of the king may rise and rise - so long as he remains in favour. With the marriage of their talents, Anne and Frankie are an even match for this beautiful, savage hunting ground. But as Frankie's situation grows dangerous, and Anne's precarious, the women are driven to a series of desperate acts - acts which could lose them everything. What price ambition, and talent, and self-creation, at the cost of total destruction?

            A powerful new novel from Nikki Gemmell, acclaimed and international bestselling author of The Bride Stripped Bare.<\p> Early 1800s. Thomasina Trelora, a wild, free-spirited young woman, is on her way to Australia. Her fate: to be married to a widowed clergyman she's never met. B...ut as she approaches the Australian coast a storm wrecks her ship and leaves her lying on the rocks - alone, battered and near death. She's saved by an Aboriginal man who carries her to the door of a grand European house, Willowbrae, and leaves her at the doorstep. <\p> In this world of colonial decorum, Tom is suddenly free to be whoever she wants and a whole new life opens up to her. But as she's drawn deeper into the intriguing world of Willowbrae she discovers that things aren't, actually, quite as they seem - and that she may have exchanged one kind of prison for another. <\p> The Ripping Tree is an intense, sharp shiver of a novel which brings to mind such diverse influences as T he Turn of the Screw, Rebecca and the film Get Out, as much as it evokes The Secret River. A gripping tale of survival written in Nikki Gemmell's signature lyrical and evocative prose, it's a powerful story of landscape, liberty and identity which examines the darkness at the heart of early colonisation. Unsettling, audacious, provocative, thrilling - and unputdownable. <\p>
